The Butterfly Challenge this fortnight is 'Butterflies + V is for Vases and/or Vanilla'. My first job was to something vanilla coloured. When does cream or ivory become vanilla? I looked at the my vanilla Promarker and it's not really cream or ivory. I looked through my patterned paper pads and remembered how Di, over in the Playground, used a sheet of patterned paper on her card HERE, you know the sheet that always seems to get left because it hasn't got an 'all-over' pattern. Well, I found one of these sheets which was predominantly vanilla and just had a printed arch of flowers. This formed my background.
The vase and flowers were punched out of snippets of coordinating paper from the same Dovecraft paper pad and I fussy cut the orange flower from a spare sheet of matching paper. A couple of the flowers were raised up on foam pads. I added a few punched flowers to the ends of the printed flower arch and a little butterfly by the sentiment. So, no dies or stamping today, just paper and punches.
I am joining in the following challenges:
